41. Olivier Roy – Amqui, PQ – 6’0″ – 165 lbs – Cape Breton – QMJHL – G

One-Timer: No relation to St. Patrick, Olivier is, however, potentially the best goalie in this draft. The athletic netminder utilizes the butterfly style of goaltending, commonly seen from products of the QMJHL. Five “C’s” might best describe this young gatekeeper – calm, cool, collective, challenging (opposing shooters, that is) and consistent.

NHL Player(s) Comparison: Marc-Andre Fleury
